I paid to Uber to this appointment only for them to say they didn’t have me down despite my confirmation email. They did not apologize and expected me to wait 4 hours until their next opening. Not a 5 star officeand has horrible customer service. Save yourself a trip and do not waste your money here! Horrible front desk girls both of them.

Dr. Sahai seems to be a very pleasant Dr. She didn’t have that god I’m here attitude like some may have. Her office staff is always pleasant and if you’ve got a problem they want to know about it. I justcame over from another pain Dr. and this is definitely a breath of fresh air.

I was treated like a junkie. My UA came out positive for using Benzos. I didn't use any Benzos. My pharmacist said that Zoloft could cause a false-positive result for use of Benzos. The doctor said no and said urine doesn'tlie. She has accused me of aquiring Benzos illegally. Wrong!

It was definitely less than satisfactory. Dr Sahai ignored the medical documents that i brought in, and tried to recommend steps that i advised were already taken. She did everything but call me a liar directly. When a doctor tells youthat your symptoms are not concerning because they don't require surgery leaves a bad taste. She acknowledged that I have arthritis in both of my knees and refused to even prescribe a refill for arthritis creme. When a doctor looks at the outward appearance instead of trying to help is disappointing

My visit with Dr. Shimula Sahai was very well. She took the time to listen and gave me answers to my questions. I felt like she understood me as well as my goal to either get off my current medication orat least be able to decrease it. I'm very satisfied with how she handled my situation and my needs.

Pick a better Dr. She picks and chooses her patient's and is far from having "BESIDE MANNER" If you wanted to be judge and picked apart then she's the one. Only if you're a Vegan and are NOT a gun owner... Unprofessional 100%

To the doctor, who was knowledgeable, empathetic, direct, actually listened(3 other health professionals couldnt/wouldnt answer my questions), and timely. A truly great appointment. It couldnt have gone better. I received the exact help I needed in the most effecient, kind, and knowledgeable way possible.
